    A delightful cozy neighborhood seafood house, with a very good raw bar and dependable cooking, whether classic and simple or inventive and complicated. We love the spicy, garlicky linguine with clams in the shell. Good wine list. More

    This Russian Hill Italian stand-by has been a meeting place for politicians and local socialites for years, and the slightly prim interior is appointed with framed pictures of the restaurant's most famous guests. The opera soundtrack can feel corny, but the food won't ruffle any feathers: lobster and crab in More
    570 Green San Francisco CA 94133
    Rat Pack-style cocktail lounge in the center of the North Beach strip -- order a double martini and tell 'em Dino sent ya -- with occasional torch singers and other live music performances. More
    689 Mission San Francisco CA 94105
    At Michelin-starred Ame, ultrafresh, Japanese-influenced seafood preparations like tempura poke with ogo seaweed and cuttlefish noodles tossed with sea urchin share the menu with stylish yet universally pleasing entrées such as duck breast with mushroom-foie gras bread pudding and crispy roast suckling pig with potato purée. Ame's specialties are the More
    83 Minna San Francisco CA 94105
    This casual but chic fish house from the Rosenthal brothers (chefs Steve and Mitchell) and their partner, Doug Washington, joins their other downtown favorites, Town Hall and Salt House. The setting, a renovated turn-of-the-19th-century warehouse, has exposed brick, painted wood floors, and a sprinkling of maritime antiques. The seasonal, fish-heavy More
    579 Castro San Francisco CA 94114
    This Castro eatery is a study in sparkling silver, as cool in appearance as the beds of ice cupping spreads of oysters. Although fresh raw bivalves make an appearance on most tables at Anchor Oyster Bar, cooked seafood is excellent here as well. The menu includes a Boston-style clam chowder; More

    655 Divisadero San Francisco CA 94117
    Impeccably fresh seafood is served in inventive presentations at a storefront that takes the raw-bar concept to a new level. Hawaiian is accented with lemongrass, daikon, mint, and cilantro; buttery Arctic char gets a mild jolt of horseradish, tobiko, and dill. Oysters, clams, prawns, and Dungeness crab are available unadorned, More

    1814 Clement San Francisco CA 94121
    The First Love roll -- scallops, peaches, and lemon mayonnaise - isn't the only inventive culinary creation served at this Outer Richmond sushi bar and lounge. Try a Hawaiian roll (tuna, mango, macadamia nuts), or a Japanese pizza topped with seaweed, salmon skin, unagi, and wasabi. The lounge area is More

    Completely off the main North Beach drag, closer to Fisherman's Wharf, Caesar's is an old-school Italian restaurant that has been keepin' it real since 1956. It is virtually the only place in the area where you can get a traditional seven-course Italian meal for less than $30. The courses include More
    2417 Lombard San Francisco CA 94123
    A charming neighborhood fish house that's worth the trip from your neighborhood. Café Maritime has an excellent raw bar, lovely fresh seafood appetizers and entrees, and a barful of temptations ranging from cocktails to cognacs, grappas, and ports (as well as a compact but thoughtful wine list). Especially useful hours: More

    28 Belden San Francisco CA 94104
    With its trompe l'oeil interior, starched tablecloths, and al fresco Belden Alley seating, Café Tiramisu looks like a Roman trattoria. The food matches the setting: crayfish-truffle risotto, wild boar pappardelle, pancetta-wrapped quail on polenta, and a marvelous panna cotta for dessert. The cheese selection is solid, the Cal-Italian wine list More

    By Fisherman's Wharf standards, Capurro's is a bargain ― a comfortable, classy place to scarf fresh seafood without burning through a stack of traveler's checks [do people even use those anymore? dangit!]. The restaurant began wooing tourists in 1946, but remains popular with visitors. You can get your crab-filled cioppino More

    2362 Market San Francisco CA 94114
    There's an Italian spin to the menu at this reasonably priced, urbane fish house in the Castro. The bar, backed with an impossibly high shelf of glittering bottles, is friendly and busy, and the popular weekend brunch features a straightforward menu that's neither particularly Italianate nor fishy.
